A Ranch Adventure Vacation – May Trail Maintenance

Spring Trail Maintenance – Dude Ranch Work Vacation

guest ranch spring chores

Spring is here! Time to groom trails! Yee-haw!

By popular demand! A new get-away idea! May 13 to May 19

So, if you want to get away from

  • the telephone ringing,
  • the traffic,
  • the TV commercials every six minutes

And you think that celebrating spring might include

  • hauling logs,
  • carrying buckets of dirt up steep climbs
    guest ranch barn and fencing

    Posts for fencing and barn – what fun!

  • setting fence posts and
  • a few hours of riding horses every day for a week?

May 13 is our spring trail maintenance week, and you are invited to join us!

Who left the corral gate open???

We will have 12  – 15 new horses joining our herd, and they will need lots and lots of riding to get into shape for the summer.

Our trails will also need lots of attention (that is, lots of sweat and dirt!). Areas of erosion will be repaired, dead  trees that may compromise safety will need to be removed, water bars built, and just maybe we will build a small barn.

Lot's of trails to clean up

  • Hard physical labor and
  • Lots of dirt.
  • No texting,
  • No cell phones,
  • No TV
  • and very limited internet available.

A break from civilization!

If this sounds like fun, visit our Dude Ranch Specials Page or call the ranch (970-224-1222) for more details.

BTW, summer is booking now. If you are planning to join us this year, you might want to call soon!
